Findlay, Robyn A., Sheehan, Mary C., Davey, Jeremy D., Brodie, Helen, & Rynne, Frank (2002) Liquor law enforcement: Policy and practice in Australia. Drugs: Education, Prevention and Policy, 9(1), pp. 85-94.
Among other things Australia’s Liquor Laws make it illegal for venues to sell alcohol to people under the age of eighteen years, or to intoxicated persons. Research has shown that there is a low level of compliance with these laws. This study surveyed the enforcement behaviour 270 rural police officers and 336 urban police officers. One of the findings was that police are more likely to enforce these laws against individuals rather than the venues that supply the alcohol.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
